Coldest Night of the Year 2021

February 20

It’s cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Walk with us virtually or in-person on February 20, 2021 – there’s a place for everyone!

Everything is Outdoors!


Because of covid, the event this year must be outside from beginning to end without exception. This includes:

  • Walker Check-In
  • Toque Pick-up
  • Walker Send-Off
  • Rest Stop


Other key things of note this year:

  • Indoor washroom facilities will be open at the start location and at the rest stop.
  • Post-event meal: There will be no traditional post-event meal this year.
  • Cash + cheques: We will not be processing these on CNOY Day, please login to Fundhub to pay off your cash and cheque pledges online.



Keep an eye on this page – we’ll be posting the socially-distanced walk times in early February.


  • 4-6 pm: Walk times – mini opening ceremonies & send off instructions before each group leaves
  • 6 pm: Last group leaves for their walk
  • 7 pm: Rest Stop Closes
  • 7:30 pm: Route Closes

Walker Check-In


  • All walkers must check in when they arrive for their walk time.
  • Walkers who raise $150+ (or $75+ for those under 18) will receive a CNOY toque as a thank you!


Route Details


  • Route Distances: 2 km or 5 km
  • Rest stop: There will be one rest stop with yummy snacks and drinks.
  • Signage: All routes will be well signed with our bold blue CNOY signs
  • Route Support: Route marshals, rest stop attendants, and sweep vehicle drivers will provide support along the route.
